The Inner City Health Associates (ICHA), are a group of physicians who work in homeless service settings.  ICHA hopes to be a useful resource to shelters and agencies serving the homeless in Toronto, through the  development of excellence in health care provision and innovative service delivery models for this population. Their care includes comprehensive family medicine care, intensive mental health care, population level heath care, health planning and interdisciplinary health team management and coordination. The ICHA family physicians and psychiatrists are a creative and flexible group open to a wide variety of service arrangements. They are looking for opportunities for developing partnerships with diverse agencies.
